[Kansas City.com] Rookie quarterback Brodie Croyle’s NFL debut was full of learning experiences. After missing the first two exhibition games because of a sore shoulder, Croyle replaced starter Trent Green in the second quarter.
Croyle had some early success, leading the Chiefs to field goals on two of his first three possessions.
But the night quickly turned dismal. Croyle completed just one of his nine passes and was sacked three times.
His debut wasn’t much better than Casey Printers’ two weeks ago in Houston.
Coach Herm Edwards made an interesting decision using Croyle ahead of Damon Huard as the No. 2 quarterback. Huard didn’t play against St. Louis, but Edwards indicated the veteran is still Green’s top reserve.
“I thought he did some good things,” Edwards said of Croyle. “I thought he got spooked a little bit. Those guys come after you. They brought a lot of pressure. He got spooked a little bit, but for the most part he kept his poise.”
” think he’s going to be a good quarterback. He made some throws. He did some things.”
